I have dealt with them for years and it's been a long time since I have had a bad one. None the less I have one now and its terrible. I ended up at the hospital I was in so much pain. Im not on medicine but I feel so yucky. anyone else ever deal with them?

I've never had them but I hear they are awful and I just wanted to say I'm so sorry you are having to deal with that pain while pregnant or anytime for that matter.  Hugs momma!!

I have had kidney stones for 18 yrs now, n it really stinks....We are pregnant with our 3rd child and I'll be 16 wks tomorrow and am going through a very rough time with stones...I have them in both kidneys and in my bladder...The spasms in the bladder with these stones are horrible...With our 2nd son I had to have stents put in both kidneys to hold stones up so I could carry the baby, which was discovered that day and I was 5mos preg...I know how they feel

So sorry mamas.  i feel lucky that I have never had them, but my sister has had them with each pregnancy and my dad has them every few years.  Seems so so painful.  Oh, I am hoping you can pass them soon and be free for the rest of the pregnancy.

i did finally pass that one, just under 4mm which doesn't sound huge but totally is. I think I may have another bouncing around right now. I have always had them too, so it isn't something new.my nephrologist referred to my kidneys as bags of marbles. I had a lithotripsy a year ago and have been fine for a year

Yeah, 4mm sounds huge enough to me, ouch!!
So sorry you ladies are dealing with this.

I hope you're doing okay! My SIL got gallstones during her first pregnancy. Probably with the hormones this kind of thing is pretty common. hug.gif
